Israel Adesanya, the UFC middleweight champion, is set to bring his story to life in a documentary entitled ‘Stylebender.’
The MMA star has had quite a journey throughout his life. From being an immigrant child to an MMA superstar, Adesanya has had to overcome many obstacles.
The documentary will focus on the road to stardom from his humble beginnings that resulted in him being a kickboxing champion and a champion within the UFC on two occasions.
And now Adesanya has revealed the motivation about bringing his story to life by countering the narrative over toxic masculinity.
